Resurrecting 2000 SV650 race bike

Figured this is a good place to document this.
10 days I go I ran across an ad on Facebook for an SV650 track bike.
Been sitting for "a couple, three years" (I think longer).
Seemed to be a solid bike. Keihin FCR 41 carbs, Penske shock, ZX6R front end, Marchesini magnesium wheels.




Got it home and took off the body work to see what I had:




Fuel lines hard as a rock but nothing scary so far. Tank filler needed a wrench to get it off. I peered cautiously inside. Ooh I smell race gas! I dumped out 2 gallons or so and it looked great! No rust, no varnish, nothing! Very encouraging.

Ooh a steering damper:


Custom battery holder:


Front AP racing master cylinder was frozen solid. Had to hammer out the piston. Rusty rusty rusty. In the bin it goes.


Front brakes, about what I expected:


Ultrasonic cleaner got a work out:


Cleaned up nice:


Next the forks. Mmmmm silvery.




But again, nothing scary.


more...

Next it was time to open up the carbs.
Fortunately the magic race gas also protected them. And they were completely dry as if someone actually drained the float bowls.


A little rust here:


Kit ordered.

Throttle linkage was stiff and nasty. Zoran from TWF racing came through with a Motion Pro kit: twfracing.com/PartsPages/throttlekit.html
He also sent me some extra o-rings for the FCRs that weren't in the rebuild kit, the inlet to the float bowl. Good thing too, they were shot.

The rearsets that were on the bike were pretty sloppy so Zoran set me up with some Woodcrafts.

New fuel line:


Did an oil change and checked the valves. All in spec except for one intake that was .08. Shimmed to .13


Shitcanned the manual cam chain tensioners for OEM versions.

Was finally ready to try to start the bike for the first time.

Some sexy bits on this one!

BTW, didn't you also just pick up an SRX-6... will we soon be seeing a thread on that bike being brought back to life?

I picked it up, immediately got scared and gave it to your friend Greg.

The pile of parts I have to give/offer you continues to grow by the way. We need to get together.

Hah! Thats kinda funny. I saw Greg posted about getting a free SRX right around the same time I introduced you. I was kinda wondering if it was passed along.

Yes, we do need to get together. I wish I had the resources to do some track days. I know of a little 500 twin that would keep your SV in good company on the track, but the rider isn't currently ready. Anyway, we should ride dirt bikes again. My daughter gets home from college today, so we could do a foursome. Carnegie, or?

Dzus fasteners arrived from KurveyGirl so the top and bottom fairings are now secure.

Added a 1/16th aluminum plate to the bottom of the subframe replacing the plastic part that PO had.
Had Dennis E. weld it and repair the broken mounting hoop.
Spent a LONG time removing the yellow vinyl goo.
Coming along!

Fresh RUBBAH!
And just couldn't go full commando with the velocity stacks. These UNIs fit perfectly on them.

Thanks guys. Got the rear tire on, Brembo 19x20 m/c installed and bled. Wow it feels amazing.
Wish I could test ride it without the neighbors coming out of their houses to yell at me, um, hypothetically.

I think I'm ready...

Good job! It's great to see an older bike resurrected instead of being scrapped or left to rot. Looks like a fun track bike.
